You seem to be missing out on Speed 7.
Have you ever thrown an Eagle? They're great discs. Might fill that gap in your bag nicely.

Here's my conundrum. And I'd love ideas...

I like to practice when I have room on the course. That means two shots from the tee/my lie. I therefore like my bag set up in pairs -- more and less stable versions of each mold. Given my choice, I'd not have a single of any mold. So I want 2 Firebirds, 2 Roadrunners, 2 Zones (everything else already has it's twin). But I don't want to carry over 20 discs. And it would be 22 if I carried my doublesa round all the time ([171 S-FB Star Firebird. Less OS FB.] and [176 *RR. More OS hyzerflip/roller]).

As Brent has put it: "I want my practice bag and my game bag to be the same bag..."

What do you folks do for that? How do you structure your "I have this course to myself" practice?

My bag holds a max of 11 discs, so before a practice round I'll decide what shots I want to work on and carry pairs of those discs, or carry a new disc for testing. This often means leaving out some of my less-used discs, which has the side benefit of learning to make one of my workhorse discs cover those lines.

I enjoy trying to make rather different discs cover the same lines. Sometimes a non-standard approach ends up working better.

For example, today I'm playing a course with several open bomber holes so I am going to stuff the bag with distance drivers and go minimal on fairways and midranges.

First shot: "What's the smart golf play"

Second shot: Either "Let's get ridiculous and try to park this" or "replay smart golf play"

So pretty much I carry my bag and just throw a second disc. If I know there are some holes on the course with generic, every course will have these situation shots, I'll bag a second disc for that (i.e. two fresh Champ Thunderbirds, two Rampages/D2s, two similar Roc3s, although my bag is already set up around this idea so it's pretty easy). And sometimes, you just have to go for the stupid @$$ shot because if it works out it's so dang fun
